According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, the Dolphins are scheduling a visit with defensive end Chris Clemons.

Clemons, 34, has had several stops throughout his 12 year career.  After being drafted by the Redskins in 2003, Clemons went on to play for the Raiders, Eagles, Seahawks and Jaguars.  He played a prominent role during Seattle's Super Bowl run in 2013.  The following season he was reunited with Gus Bradley in Jacksonville.  In 2014, Clemons started all 16 games for the Jaguars, accumulating 27 tackles and 8 sacks.  Last season, Clemons was more of a rotational player, netting only 13 tackles and 3 sacks. Throughout his career, Clemons has recorded 200 tackles, 69.5 sacks, and 20 forced fumbles.

If the Dolphins decide to extend a contract offer to the veteran defensive end, he would be brought in as added depth on an aging defensive line.
